Public Consultation on Stornoway Wind Farm Environmental Information

Lewis Wind Power has announced the publication of further important environmental information, including additional work on the Peat Slide Risk assessment, as part of the Stornoway Wind Farm’s revised proposals.

John Buswell, Project Director for Lewis Wind Power said:

“As part of our variation to our originally consented wind farm proposal, we have been asked by the Scottish Government to submit Further Environmental Information (FEI). We would encourage the public to look at this important additional information during the consultation period.

“The Stornoway Wind Farm continues to make good progress and we look forward to announcing further developments in due course.”

Following the submission of revisions to the original planning application to the Scottish Government’s Energy Consents and Deployment Unit, the company will submit to the Scottish Government Further Environmental Information (FEI) relating to the Stornoway Wind Farm Environmental Statement. The information is open to public consultation. Members of the public are encouraged to view the additional data and send their views to the Scottish Government by 28th October.

Copies of the supplementary material are available for public viewing at Stornoway Library and at the Comhairle nan Eilean Siar Council Offices on Sandwick Road, Stornoway, during office opening hours.
